Powers/Abilities: Magical cloak that protects him from being directly injured by the demon; I'm uncertain if it affords any protection against other threats.

History: Running away from a harsh orphanage, Davey Drew took refuge in a cave for the night, soon discovering a wall deep in its recesses. A voice issued from behind the wall, pleading for Davey's aid in breaking free; following its instructions, Davey let loose the captive, only to discover it was a demon. Indebted to Davey, the Demon promised not to harm him, and gave him a cloak to protect him, before departing to begin a rampage. Seeing the destruction he had inadvertently unleashed, Davey sought to stop the Demon, who turned angrily on his benefactor, only for his attacks to rebound from the cloak. Unable to injure Davey, the Demon instead trapped him in a net, but the Prince of Good, the ancient magician originally responsible for capturing the Demon, had sensed his foe's return and arrived in time to free Davey and trap the Demon once more. Davey teamed up with the Prince several more times as the Demon broke free again and again; eventually, while fighting the Demon without the Prince to aid him, Davey saw his monstrous enemy apparently drown when the Demon inadvertently flooded the underground cavern they were in.
